Mark your calendars for BPG's Southwestern Ontario Chapter's

Fall Membership Meeting

Wednesday November 6, 2019  

11am - 2:30pm

Lochiel Kiwanis Community Center

180 College Ave N

Sarnia, ON





Each of the seven BPG Chapters has its own section of the site which allows us the opportunity to communicate with our members and the flexibility to serve the regional needs of our members.  SWO Chapter extends from Windsor east to Guelph area and from Lake Erie in the south right up to the Owen Sound area - hence the name of Southwestern Ontaio Chapter.  We hope you enjoy our website and come back often!

BPG members know that we are an organization of retirees from the Bell Group of Companies founded in 1995 dedicated to protecting two of your most important assets: your Bell pension and your Bell benefits. BPG has become a well respected group within the community of pension stakeholders in Canada and this gives a common voice to Bell reitees.

Since we have no way to be in touch with current retirees as they leave the company other than the list provided to all retirees in the In Touch publication, we must rely on you our valued members to either approach these new retirees and invite them to join BPG, or we must depend on you our members to contact your BPG Area Representative or another member of your Chapter Committee so that we can extend a personal invitation to them to become one of us.

The Bell Pensioners Group is valuable to you as a Bell retiree for three main reasons:  we advocate with the company, government and others on your behalf,  we are current on matters relative to your pension and benefits and we have access to pension expertise within the BPG organization.

As you know links to all five of our BPG Chapters are right here on our website for your convenience as well as all of the back issues of our BPG Chapter newsletters by using the link published in our current newsletter that you receive regularly as a member. Our membership application form for all chapters can be located by clicking here

As membership in the Bell Pensioners Group grows, we increase our ability to influence outcomes relative to our Bell Pension and Benefits. The more Bell retirees we represent, the more influence we hold in protecting these valuable assets to your life.

Are there new Bell retirees in your circle of friends or social groups? Do they know about BPG. It is one of the best kept secrets in the Bell community and they may not have heard about us. Please invite them to join or contact your Area Rep or a member of your Chapter Committee and we'll ensure they receive a warm welcome.
